- Record the number of hours you read - everything you read from January 1st to February 28th counts for the Winter Reading Program.
- Go to the Winter Reading Minutes Submission Form and submit your ballots. You can do this from here on the website or by following the links and QR codes in your reading log.

- If you are age 10-16, add one ballot for every 5 hours read.
- If you are age 17+, add one ballot for every 7 hours read.
You can add ballots one at a time, or do many at once- just divide your hours read by 3, 5 or 7, depending on your age. For our youngest readers (0-9), we have a special reading log to help you out!
The contest will be open from January 1st to February 28th. Don't miss out!
Read for 15 & Family Literacy Day
Family Literacy Day
January 27th is Family Literacy Day! To celebrate, we've teamed up with the Morinville Leisure Centre to bring you a StoryWalk at the walking track! Created as a project to help libraries promote healthy living, StoryWalk® lets you read while you move, placing a whole story along a path to give you a whole different experience.
More details will be announced closer to the date.
Read for 15
On January 27th, participate in a province-wide reading competition: for one day only, all the teams will be working together to get our library ranked in the contest to see who reads the most!
Read for 15 minutes on January 27th and log your time on the Read for 15 form - you can come here to the website or pick up a bookmark from the library with a code that will take you straight there.
You will have from 9:00 AM on January 27 to 4:30 PM on January 28 to enter your minutes. Prepare for the battle of Alberta!
